Footymad preview History of the Hartlepool United v Tranmere Rovers fixture

Tranmere Rovers face a trip to Hartlepool United at Victoria Park on Friday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2009, the Pools carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League One match.
